    Can't share files on desktop pc with laptop


    Hi,
    I'm trying to enable sharing of files located on my win10 (version 1903 OS build 18362.418) desktop pc with my win7 laptop.
    Instructions https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...over-a-network are:

    1. Right-click or press a file, select Give access to > Specific people
    2. Select a file, select the Share tab at the top of File Explorer, and then in the Share with section select Specific people.

    The person I'm interested in providing sharing privileges has a name on my laptop, but i not recognized by my desktop.

    How do I make him visible?
    Or, else, how do I enable sharing under these circumstances?

    :)

    Laptops cannot access desktops via WIFI

    I have 3 desktops (all on Windows 10 1803) connected on my LAN. After following this forum for some times and did all the steps as suggested by forum member, access denied, all my desktops are able to view and access one another. I have a printer connected to PC1, and managed to connect all the other 2 PCs to have the shared printer.

    I also have 2 more laptops (both Asus with the same Windows 10 1803) connected via WIFI. Performed all the same steps as per the desktops, but I was not able to access PC1. I was able to view all the 3 desktops from the file explorer, but I just can't access all the desktops. However, I was able to access the Asus laptops from desktop PC1.

    Anyone able to assist on this matter? Any assistance is highly appreciated.

    windows 10 deleted my desktop files

    Step 1 - I upgraded to Win 10 and lost all my files on Desktop.

    Step 2 - Found the files in Network - USers- Desktop

    copied all files again to desktop.

    Step 3- Restarted my machine again and lost desktop files again.

    Step 4 - As suggested did the following as listed below but dont find my files.

    • Press “Windows + E”, open This PC/Computer
    • Open Local Disc C, open Windows.old
    • Click on Users, select your User name
    • Go to desktop folder
    Cant find my files. Why is Win 10 deleted files again and again from Desktop ?.
